A new teacher was trying to make use of her psychology courses. She started her class by saying, “Everyone who thinks he’s stupid, stand up!”
After a few seconds, little Joe stood up. The teacher was surprised, but realized this was an opportune moment to help a child.
“Do you think you’re stupid, Joe?” she asked.
“No, ma’am,” Joe replied, “but I hated to see you standing there all by yourself!”
